The Inveralmond Roundabout lies at the norther end of the A9 Perth bypass route, and is where the A9 rejoins its historic route, shortly before crossing the Almond Bridge just to the north. The roundabout is at grade, with all three main arms being dualled, albeit the A912 into Perth quickly narrowing to an urban S2 / S2+1 mix. The fourth arm in the north west corner leads into the Inveralmond industrial estate.

Due to the large volume of traffic staying on the A9 at this busy roundabout, there are long term plans to build a new route for the A9 further to the west, as a bypass of the bypass! One of the plans under consideration would run around the outside of the Inveralmond Industrial Estate, with a new crossing of the River Almond, and meet the existing A9 someway to the north. There is then the possibility of a new crossing of the Tay, so connecting to the A93 and A94. However, other plans seem to show a more watered-down solution where this new road is simply a local development route, leaving the A9 where it is with the same old problems.
